Dental Care for Dogs
The most commonly diagnosed health problem in dogs is dental disease. Bad breath, red and swollen gums, changes in appetite/eating and chewing habits, depression or pawing at the face are all symptoms of a greater underlying problem and should be treated immediately. At Baxter Animal Hospital, we provide a full range of dental care services to help your dog live a long, happy and healthy life.
What types of dental care do you offer at your clinic?
We offer a variety of options and products for home dental care including supplements, treats and toys. We also provide dental x-rays, cleanings and if necessary, extractions.
How often should you brush your dog’s teeth?
Ideally, your dog’s teeth should be brushed daily. However, we understand this standard can’t be met by everyone. Remember to brush as often as you possibly can to benefit your dog’s health.
Why is oral and dental health important?
It is important because infected and diseased teeth can be a pathway to infect other organs. Additionally, it is painful and can affect their appetite and behaviour.
